Aircraft Optical Window Systems

Product Specifications

L3Harris is an industry leader in the design, integration and sustainment of optical-grade windows on airborne platforms. We have developed a range of special optical-grade windows, optimized for viewing targets in a wide spectrum of wavelengths ranging from ultraviolet to visible to short/mid/long wave infrared to provide for transmission of electromagnetic energy into sensors located inside airborne platforms. Our expertise includes the material selection and design of the optical window, the safety and airworthiness of the optical window integration, and the sustainment needs of the optical window system.

  • Material and coating selection for desired bandpass range and optical window fabrication
  • Optical window aircraft-mounting adapter design and fabrication
  • Specialized fatigue analysis and risk mitigation planning for optical window usage
  • Structural substantiation of aircraft structure interface with optical window mounting
  • Optical window handling instructions
  • Optical window continued airworthiness inspection program planning
  • Optical window care and maintenance program planning
  • Optical window usage tracking and hours logging management
